Episode 129: Can-ABE-bal

Topic suggested by listener Eric Bond.

In 1846, Donner Party set out on their ill-fated trek across the continent to California facing challenges, starvation, and other hardships with almost half of the original contingent dying in route and rumors of desperate acts being undertaken to survive.

Few know of the connection that future president Abraham Lincoln had to the group and how he and his wife were invited to be part of the group and their move to California.

How would history have been different if Abe had chosen to head to California?
